5045 Westminster

This 7-bedroom, 3-full and 1-half bathroom home in the Central West End is listed for $825,000.

As St. Louis commemorates 250 years of rich history, you, too, can take a step back in time, with this 109-year-old home in the Central West End. Modern updates blended with gorgeous, original details mean you’ll have the privilege of enjoying the best of both worlds. Rich woods and stained-glass windows offer a unique elegance in the living and dining rooms, and leaded glass-door cabinets border the expansive living room’s fireplace. A second fireplace in the dining room complements a stunning, built-in china cabinet. You’ll fall head over heels for the original Magic Chef stove in the kitchen (with a new stove to use for modern cooking.) The butler’s pantry still boasts its original cabinetry, and the original ice room has been converted to extra kitchen space, with a task sink and custom refrigerator-freezer.

Each member of the family will love having their own space: Two upper floors offer a master suite with a fireplace, luxurious bathroom and sitting room with an additional fireplace, as well as four additional bedrooms, a fireplace, and two full bathrooms and an extra room. Explore your hobbies in the lower level, with a dark room and wine cellar.
